I need to step away from my computer right now. I am getting really upset at myself over what's a temporary technical hurdle.

Time to calm down, eat lunch, clear my head, come back to it.


@cwebber I find that whenever I feel entangled in a web of architecture or code that I've woven myself, it's best to put down the keyboard, and go for a walk.

A shower can help, too.

Or preparing a snack. (If actually hungry, also eating the snack.)

You'd think that the fundamentals of software design were lofty and deep, but this is what I've learnt: walking helps to think, and a break helps too.
